Distance Learning Testing Centers (DLTC)

DLTC - Testing Infractions

How does the DLTC define a testing infraction?

A tester breaches the general testing guidelines defined within the DLTC’s Memorandum of Understanding or the specific exam instructions provided by the tester’s instructor for a specific exam.

Reporting testing infractions:

All DL Testing Centers’ staff witnessing the infraction will write an incident report providing both the tester’s actions as well as the proctor’s actions. Additionally, we will remove items that are considered prohibited (hidden note sheets, duplicate cellphones, hidden notecards, etc.) or close additional tabs when spotted. The DL Testing Centers’ proctoring staff will notify the supervisor on duty about the incident and the supervisor will reach out to the faculty member via phone to inform the faculty member of the incident. Finally, the supervisor on duty will review the surveillance footage for any additional infractions. 

Please note that the DL Testing Centers’ staff will not stop a tester from completing his/her exam unless instructed to by the professor. Instead, our staff will allow the tester to finish his/her exam and provide the details to the professor concerning when the tester checked in and out for the exam and the approximate time of the infraction. 

After the incident reports are created by the testing center staff, these reports will be scanned and emailed to the professor with the tester’s signed Memorandum of Understanding. If surveillance footage is available regarding the incident, our staff will inform the instructor and create a DVD copy of the footage for the faculty to pick up. 

Upon receipt of the incident report, it will be the faculty’s responsibility to report the incident to other WKU personnel or departments such as Department heads or Judicial Affairs if deemed necessary unless the incident is of a severe nature and then the DL Testing Center staff will email Judicial Affairs a copy of the report.
